Alleged abuse, coverups and years of trauma: Inside the legacy of the Basilian Fathers

Last Updated Oct 20, 2020 at 11:31 am EDT

In today’s Big Story podcast, for almost two years an investigative team has been digging into claims of child sexual assault by priests who belong to a Canadian Catholic order known as the Basilian Fathers. The results of their work form Unrepentant, a film that includes firsthand accounts from victims of abuse, the near-murder of an accused pedophile, the mystery death of a priest after he is exposed, secret church files that show a pattern of shuffling around known abusers and a victim’s journey to Vatican City to confront church leaders…and more. The project’s lead reporter joins us for a look at how it came together.
